Covering digital transformation, the document was signed by Vladimir Sitnov, Senior Vice President of Sberbank, and fishery farm Chair Sergey Tarusov.

The bank views Lenin Fishery Collective Farm as a strategic partner and is going to provide it with quality high-tech financial services, analytics, information, and work on the company’s digital transformation. The provision of a full range of banking services with modern technology at the core should improve the operational efficiency of the farm and streamline its business processes.

We have a long history of successful collaboration with this partner by providing classic banking finance and issuing bank guarantees. This is also our payroll customer. While our partnership mostly used to revolve around financial products, the strategic partnership agreement we have signed today will let us focus on the services and solutions that should facilitate our partner’s digital transformation.
